This is such a lovely yarn, made ever more lovely with these lovely handpainted colours. It has a high silk content, so its drape is soft rather than crisp. The linen has longish random bast fibres that give the finished product a unique appearance. Because of the dye type we use for handpainting, both the Silk and the Linen dye, so we don't have the heathered effect of the solid dyed colours.
